Now on DVD: The Pirate Fairy
Ever wonder how Tinker Bell met Captain Hook? Disney has released another film that follows Tinker Bell and her friends called The Pirate Fairy. It focuses on a Dust fairy Zarina (voiced by Christina Hendricks) who is very curious about why there are only 2 colors of pixie dust.
Zarina is more of an outsider, she asks a lot of questions and when she’s away from everyone else she spends lots of time experimenting. Dust fairies are mostly shown in a factory-type setting and Tinker Bell and her friends whenever they see Zarina always wonder how she manages to run out of dust so often. We know from the previous films pixie dust is not an unlimited supply and we now that somehow once Tink lives with Peter Pan and the Lost Boys that she doesn’t seem to need to ever visit Pixie Hollow anymore. While The Pirate fairy doesn’t bridge that gap it does take you a few steps closer.
Here’s the official synopsis:
From the world of “Peter Pan” comes “The Pirate Fairy,” a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by Blue Pixie Dust and its endless possibilities. When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship. Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook himself.
You read that right we get to meet Captain Hook before Peter pan before he was Hook and when he’s known only as James the cabin boy and Loki does his voice. You hear more then a few of those sneering laughs. The Pirate Fairy (Blu-Ray combo pack)
comes with deleted scenes, some behind the scenes footage of Tom Hiddleston voicing James and singing, a few shorts – which really made me laugh, sing-a-longs and other goodies. If you buy the combo you can also enter your magical code to the Disney Everywhere app and watch on the go. The Pirate Fairy is rather entertaining. It’s available now to own.
